About Sarah Campbell

We currently live in West Seattle! We have raised our kids here and enjoyed many a day at Alki Beach. We run a local small business and are really excited with the launch of our new 'vacation rental'. We know a glimpse of West Seattle will make you love it as much as we do. Just a bridge or water taxi ride away from all the excitement and amenities of Downtown Seattle while offering the remote feel of an island. We look forward to your reviews of your stay at our 'Alki Abode'.

Sarah Campbell purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Sarah Campbell chose West Seattle

We recently purchased the separate mainhouse and saw the potential to have a separate VRBO close to the beach.


Car: not necessary

We are minutes away from the Water Taxi, a very unique/fun way to downtown Seattle's waterfront and a short walk to Pike Place Market.

The location was great! Space was as described with no surprises.

  • 5 of 5

Space was as expected. Everything was clean and comfortable. Parking space was appreciated as well as things are tight in Alki.

Great location - short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This guest home was clean and in a great location that was easy to find. We loved walking to a restaurant for coffee or dinner and the beach. The point has a lot of things to offer - be sure to go tide-pooling on the south side of the point! The carport was a tight squeeze, but nice to have, as parking was scarce, and the neighborhood was safe to walk around. We have 2 kids and they slept on the pull-out couch. Thanks for the great stay!

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here in August for three nights. It was a very nice place, cutely decorated, clean and easy to find and only a block from the waterfront. Lots of restaurant choices in walking distance (and Starbucks too)!

FYI: This is a second floor unit. The bathroom is on the ground floor, then you go up a full level (stairs)to the living, kitchen, bedroom. If you have heavy suitcases, you'll want to leave them downstairs. If you need the bathroom in the middle of the night; or if you have trouble with stairs, it's a bit awkward to have to go down for the restroom. They could use another fan or two as well. Otherwise, great place!

Nice place; very good location

  • 4 of 5

My family of four enjoyed our stay here. It's a great location (5 min walk from the waterfront and all its restaurants) and it was nice having the two separate rooms. We were there when it was unseasonably hot in Seattle, so understand air conditioning may not normally be needed, but do note there is no a/c and it got VERY hot there. We definitely recommend the owners update to a higher quality fan, put fans in BOTH rooms (we were using both to sleep in with our family of 4), and put screens on the windows so that you can keep the windows open on hot nights without bugs coming in (there were some ants) in the condo when we arrived. Some minor updates/revisions are needed (broken mirror right as you walk in, bed mattress in need of update for better quality, should have a new sponge for each new guest) but overall it's a very nice little place and served our family's needs well. Owners were communicative prior to our stay and gave multiple ways of reaching them if needed (we did not) which was appreciated. We would stay here again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Close to beach and restaurants. Clean and spacious. Only things to mention are there is no AC (which can get warm in the summer), only one portable fan and house being built behind it will leave no privacy if needed. Good for staying the night and venturing out during the day.

Perfect location. Excellent service.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 16 yr old son and I stayed here from Virginia, for 9 nights. Sarah was so very accommodating. She even went as far as letting my insurance co send Canadian ID cards to her house, and delivered to us. The decor is beautiful, and it's a spacious unit. The location is amazing, steps to so many local restaurants and coffee shops. Don't bother with Starbucks...Top Pot is better, and right beside it. The neighborhood is quiet, though a little noisy few days with construction to main house. No biggie. Bathroom is very nice, but on another level. Only thing I would suggest is a small fan in bedroom. There's one in living room, but the teenager wouldn't give it up. Overall a great place! If I ever come back to Seattle again, this is where I'm staying.
